Voice Over and Actor Training:

As an Actor, I’ve been on a path of taking a variety of actor and drama training since 2012.  My motivation behind this is to broaden my range of skills as a voiceover artist, and potentially take additional work as either voice actor or actor.

Voice Training.

I have taken a variety of voice training over the last 6 years, including a mixture of workshops and 1-2-1 coaching.  I am currently training with Nancy Wolfson from Braintracks Audio in Los Angeles.  Nancy is a world-leading coach in Commercial Voiceover and Acting For Advertising.

I see voice work as an on going process of self development.  I also think it’s important for voiceover artists to get “another ear” on their work, to continue that progression.

Meisner Technique.

Meisner has really been at the heart of my actor training in the last 6 years, amounting to hundreds of hours of training.  I completed a year long course in 2015 with Keith Farquar (Moment to Moment Acting).   I have also travelled to attend some of Keith’s European classes in Lyon, Strasbourg and Brussels.  I have also done a significant number of courses with Scott Williams (Impulse Theatre Company), including a workshop in Copenhagen, which also included training with Niki Flacks.   Niki’s work compliments Meisner, and focuses on “acting with passion”, how to be alive and emotionally open in our work.  All this alongside sessions in Leeds with West Yorkshire Theatre Network and its successor Both Feet.

Act Up North.

I attended weekly ‘acting for camera’ workshops with Act Up North in Leeds, from 2013 to 2017.   They focus on acting technique for TV and Film.  They regularly have workshops with visiting Casting Directors and other industry professionals.  I’m taking a break right now, but will go back!
